If a ball is thrown directly upward with a velocity of 32 ft/s, its height (in feet) after t seconds is given by y = 32t − 16t2. What is the maximum height attained by the ball? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

y = 32t- 16t^2

At maximum height, dy/dt = 0

Or, 32 -32t = 0

Or, t = 32/32 = 1 sec

Hence, maximum y = 32*1-16*1^2 = 16 ft  Ans. 

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
